LA/LB Remote Operations Phase 1

Federal Construction Group, Inc. is tasked to upgrade existing RPM equipment at each of the terminals included in Phase 1 to allow CBP to operate the RPMs from a remote location (Ocean Boulevard). Remote operation will require 1) Remotely accessible situational awareness (surveillance cameras), remotely controlled RPM and traffic control (gate arms, traffic lights), and remotely facilitated communications between CBP and drivers (intercoms).  Construction should be performed one terminal at a time. It is desired that construction at each terminal will proceed in the following order; Pier G, Pier E, Pier T, and Pier 400.

Pier G:
Pier G is operated by ITS. Pier G will consist of two project locations, Main Gate with 2 cargo lanes, and Rail Gate with 2 cargo lanes. Main Gate scope includes installing/replacing the VIS cameras and lights, traffic lights, intercoms, gate arms and surveillance cameras. New annunciators will be installed in the Main Gate booth. The RPM control boxes will be upgraded and a new Annunciator Interface Device (AID) will be installed for each lane. The AIDs will be installed on a new equipment bank installed on the Main Gate booth exterior. Lane closure lights will be installed on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed on an existing bollard near the secondary inspection area. Two new ROHN towers will be installed for the surveillance cameras. New signage will be added and some of the existing signage will be replaced.
Rail Gate consists of 2 cargo lanes. Rail Gate scope includes installing/replacing VIS cameras, traffic lights, intercoms, gate arms and surveillance cameras. A new AID will be installed at each lane. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. New beacon/sirens will be installed downstream of each RPM. Four ROHN towers will be installed for the surveillance cameras.

Pier E:
Pier E consists of two project locations, Main Gate with 3 cargo lanes and Rail Gate with 1 cargo lane. The scope includes installing/replacing new VIS cameras and lights, lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. A new AID will be installed at each lane. At Main Gate the AIDs and an Auxiliary PLC will be installed on an existing equipment bank located at the lanes. At the Rail Gate a new equipment bank will be installed at the lane for the AID and a Micro PLC. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. The Rail Gate will require installation of a new ROHN tower for the surveillance cameras and an alarm beacon/siren located near the booth.

Pier T:
Pier T consists of three project locations, Main Gate with 2 cargo lanes, Back Gate with 1 lane, and Rail Gate with 2 lanes.
Main Gate scope includes installation/replacements of lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. New AIDs will be installed on a new equipment bank at the booth. Three ROHN towers will be installed for the surveillance cameras. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed downstream of the RPMs.
Back Gate scope includes installation/replacements of VIS cameras and lights, lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. New AIDs will be installed on a new equipment bank at the booth. One new ROHN tower will be installed for the surveillance cameras. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed downstream of the RPMs.  Rail Gate scope includes installation/replacing VIS cameras and lights, lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. New AIDs and a PLC will be installed on a new equipment bank at the booth. One new ROHN tower will be installed for the surveillance cameras. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed downstream of the RPMs.

Pier 400:
Pier 400 consists of two project locations, Main Gate with 4 cargo lanes and Rail Gate with 2 cargo lanes. Main Gate scope includes installation/replacements of lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. New AIDs will be installed on a new equipment bank located at the Main Gate booth. A new PLC will be installed on a new equipment rack located at the lanes. Two ROHN towers will be installed for the surveillance cameras. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed downstream of the RPMs. New annunciators will be installed in the Main Gate booth.  The Rail Gate scope includes installation/replacements of VIS cameras and lights, lane intercoms, gate arms, traffic lights, and surveillance cameras. New AIDs will be installed on existing equipment banks located at each lane. Lane closure lights will be mounted on the RPM shrouds. A beacon/siren will be installed on the Rail booth. New annunciators will be installed in the Rail Gate booth.

General (applies to all four Piers):
1. Communications cabling will consist of both cat6 and Single mode fiber optic.
2. New signage will be added and some of the existing signage will be replaced.
3. New stop lines will be repainted where worn, as shown in design drawings.
4. Provide professional engineering or testing services, as required, including
• hidden utilities and structures scanning, prior to any excavation
• cable connectivity, prior to installer departure
• soil testing and disposal, per local requirements
5. The method and schedule/phasing of the work is specified in Sections 01320 and 01700.
6. All personnel shall wear safety equipment (shoes, vests, hard hats) as necessary and/or required. Lock-out/tag-out procedures shall be in place during electrical work, as appropriate. RPMs do not emit radiation, x-rays, or other emissions and are strictly passive devices. The contractor does not need RPM experience.  7. Transportation worker identification credential (TWIC) and CBP vetting for onsite personnel may be required. In advance of construction NTP, the contractor shall provide PNNL with the names and contact information, as requested by CBP, for all personnel working onsite.
8. The PNNL Site Manager shall be onsite or on call to provide technical assistance.
